Attic Insulation in Amarillo
Amarillo Residents Save on Energy with Professional Attic Insulation Services
Adding insulation to your home remains the single best investment you can make to reduce utility costs and improve indoor comfort. Attic insulation is a relatively inexpensive upgrade that has no moving parts. Once the material is installed, it continues to provide savings for as long as the building remains standing.

Typical Attic Insulation Materials
Fiberglass is the most commonly recognized insulation material. It is made up of woven strands of glass fibers and millions of tiny air pockets that work to slow the transfer of thermal energy. In retrofit applications, the attic insulation company will spray the material until the ceiling is completely covered with a specific thickness and density.
The Importance of R-Values
R-value is a measurement system used to determine the amount of heat that is transferred through a material over a specific time period. A higher R-value provides better efficiency, which means that total R-value is more important than the number of applied inches of material.
Benefits of Insulation Upgrade
At Gary's, our professional attic insulation service provides a variety of important benefits:
- Better Comfort: Homes with inadequate levels of insulation tend to have significant temperature fluctuations, especially in adverse conditions immediately after the system shuts off. With the proper level of insulation, heat transfer is disrupted, which keeps the living area warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
- Reduced Utility Costs: Most homes built before the early 2000s do not have adequate levels of insulation according to the Department of Energy. Adding enough attic insulation to meet Energy Star standards can save up to 30% on annual heating and cooling operating costs. Payback on an attic re-blow can be in as little as two years.
- Lower HVAC Repair Costs: HVAC preventative maintenance is important, but adding attic insulation will reduce the indoor load, which can help prevent premature stress and wear on vital equipment components. In the same way your car lasts longer with fewer miles driven, furnaces and air conditioners that accumulate fewer run-time hours last longer and break down less frequently.
